Open My Heart

Open My Heart

I guess we all hurt sometimes/ so I find myself
takin' it one day at a time ya' know/ Cause' ain't nothin'
easy about this life here/ I must seek my Source/ One day
at a time y'all

Nothing in this world will ever be peaches and
cream/ That's just in everyday living not mentioning
spiritual things/ I get sick and tired of hard times/ It's hard
to renew my mind/ Hard to put the past behind when ya'
feelin' blind/ I grew up seeing the same ol' murdas/ Same
ol' thugs in the same ol' swervas/ Sometimes I was afraid
to walk through the 'hood/ I know we say it but ain't all
good I'm keeping it real/ My daddy came home he was
robbed/ Mom on disability and daddy lost his job/ So where
that leave me at?/ I go to school wit dirty shoes and wack
ball caps/ I'm in the hall catchin' all laughs/ I'm tryin' to
stay focused 'cause this locust is real/ Went to kick it but
my homie got killed/ I'm under all pressure/ The Lord
blessed a young ghetto child like Flame/ I'm still living
through the sufferin' and pain

Lord I know that you already love me/ And you want
me to walk by my faith/ But it's hard for me to see you when
there's no good around/ So I need you to open my heart so
I can love you more/ (While I'm livin' I'mma give you my

It kinda makes me laugh cause it's been a long
time comin'/ Messed up so many times but yet I'm still
growin'/ See it hurt when my grandmother died/ I'm in the
hospital room over her bed lookin' her in the eyes/ She
always said go to church and serve the Lord/ And put Him
first over everything especially money and cars/ She had a
major impact on who I am now/ Bowin' down worshipin'
and sending praises up loud/ But yet she's gone and the
same bad things are going on/ It's hard for lil' Flame to stay
strong but yet I hold on/ Life is so short we only passing
through/ Able to catch you a laugh or two/ I seen a lady
last week gettin' beat down/ And thirteen year old girls
gettin' freaked down/ Now you can tell we in the last days/
The world has turned away from God now we livin' in our
own ways/ Since I have been saved the death angel has
passed over/ My down was covered by the blood straight
from Jehovah/ See I'm grateful/ For the way of escape
from bein' hateful/ The dollar doesn't make you/ Power
doesn't make you/ I have seen it all nothin' new under the
sun/ He made a way out so I had to run/ I'm tired of
poverty/Ghetto areas and trife livin'/ I'm tryin to elevate to
Christ livin/ His righteous life we livin' come on

Who else can fill the void straight from all the love
that I lost/ Except the One who shed all his blood at the
cross/ I didn't ask to be born into this world at all/ But
through God's grace I was created to praise God/ But it
gets really hard/ I was born right into sin/ I was headed for
hell before my life even began/But since I'm here now
through Christ I'll make the best of it/ I trust God so I'll let
him do the rest/How else could I have peace in this life of
crime/ How else could I have peace when the battle's in
my mind/ How else could I have peace with a broken heart/
I wish it was the end like Noah's ark/ It'll be all over/ No
more pain no more sufferin'/ No more games no more
thuggin' no more hustlin'/ I praise God for eternal life the
Mediator/ Who gave the ultimate sacrifice/ And we call
him Jesus Christ!

(While I'm livin' I'mma give you my all) (7x) I want to
love you Jesus/ I want to love you love you/ I want to know
you yeah yeah yeah/ Ooh Jesus/ I want to know you know
you/ So will you open my heart so I can love you/ More
(2x)/ Said I wanna be more like you yes/ Said I wanna know
how you talked and how you walked/ Step by step I'll get
there/ If you just hold my hand/ And show me the way (2x)
